University of Nebraska, Department of Entomology
Size: 3/16 inch long or less. (It is often challenging to recognize small sized beetles from a picture. Because different insects may be treated differently, be sure the insect is correctly identified before attempting control.)
Where/When: Can be found indoors at any time of the year, especially in kitchens and other rooms where dried food products are stored.
Significance: This beetle infests primarily on whole grain, including corn, rice and seeds. It occasionally may infest pasta, nuts, dried fruit.
